president joe biden. it was yesterday, a sunday, a day we traditionally do not hold inauguration ceremonies. all the pomp and celebration were saved for today. our friend lawrence o'donnell is at the west front triangle outside the capitol. lawrence, what's the feeling there this morning? what is it like out there? >> reporter: the good news the feeling is warmer than anyone thought it was going to be. everybody was really worried around here in the last couple days just how cold it would be. it's livable in the 40s. and, rachel, they opened up the security system here at 7:00 a.m. people have been streaming in here since 7:00 a.m. they are not all through security yet. they will still be at least another hour of that. 250,000 of the president's closest friends have gotten tickets to this. not all of them get seats. some of them, some of the tickets are just standing tickets, and what you see behind me going down the mall are the people who are just here because they want to be here and they don't need a ticket. and they are in the free space, which may in many ways be the most fun place to
, and it is my great honor and privilege to ask joe biden to the stage. have fun, everybody. thank you. ♪ >> good morning, everyone. thank you, chelsea and eva for leading this important effort, and thank you, most importantly to you out here on this chilly saturday morning for being here. your dedication is an inspiration to me and my family had its event, a national day of service, is a wonderful way to honor, as chelsea eloquently noted, the legacy of dr. king, and kick off this inaugural weekend. it is also a reminder, a reminder that the veterans of our nation, every day is a service for them, and everyday day is a day of sacrifice. today, we remember during my 10 year career in the military, and one tour in iraq i have had the honor of serving with true heroes whose service and sacrifice i have seen up close and personal. as of yesterday, we remember today, the 6572 brave men and women in uniform that have paid the ultimate sacrifice, returning home as fallen angels through my station in dover, delaware. if you look around this magnificent mall, you will see great monuments to that service,
. you understood it was not just about a candidate. it was not just about joe biden or barack obama. this was about us, who we are as a nation, what values we cherish, how hard we're willing to fight to make sure those values live not just for today but for future generations. all of you here understood and were committed to the basic notion that when we put our shoulders to the wheel of history it moves. it moves. it moves forward. that's part of what we celebrate when we come together for inauguration. yesterday americans in all 50 states took part in a national day of service. tomorrow hundreds of thousands will join us in the national mall. what the inauguration reminds us of is the role we have as fellow citizens in promoting a common good even as we carry out our individual responsibilities. the sense there's something larger than ourselves that give shape and meaning to our lives. the theme of this year's inauguration is our people and our future. throughout my career what's always give me energy and inspiration and hope, what's allowed me to stand up when i've been knocked d

. the green ball. you can probably tell that because it's green everywhere. there's vice president joe biden partying hard tonight in washington. >> i apologize. >> not sure what he's doing. let's take a little listen. >> i'm going to be very brief. i came to say thank you. i saw to you, thank you. i also came to tell you what my green wish is. >> let's see if the vp may drift in to al green. show barack obama what he's made of. we'll be back after the break. >> washington's big weekend. a chance for a-listers to mix with everybody who's anybody in the world of politics, entertainment, you name it. they're here. parties both official and unofficial erupting all over town tonight and joining me now is the ultimate party boy himself, my old buddy of "america's got talent" nick cannon with an event with the first lady last night. good to see you. >> you, too. >> a quick word with doug brinkley about dr. angelou there. what did you make of what she said and martin luther king may have said to barack obama? >> just i thought it was very moving and you got a nice call-out from her. she's a great m
in 2016? >> eric: i do. i love him. i would rather watch joe biden all day today than listen to president obama. >> dana: you might get your chance. >> greg: i came across this before the show started. my favorite inaugust ration moment was michelle obama sitting next to john boehner. shoots him the most disgusted look. it's like that is -- only a woman could pull that off. isn't that great? >> kimberly: eyeball roll. >> greg: did you doctor that? no. a woman is good at that. >> dana: that is why hillary clinton will be a good candidate. >> kimberly: ice it. >> bob: did you say that is the way you look at me? >> dana: sometimes. you have don't see me. >> bob: yes, i do. congratulations to bill and melinda gates who made enormous contributions but now they have a goal to eradicate polio from the earth. only one other disease eradicated was smallpox. we don't have polio in the united states much anymore. it's rampant in africa and asia. congratulate them for using the money the right way. >> dana: they are tireless. >> bob: they are. >> dana: they use their money in the right way when they
was very, very pleased with what i heard from the president and the work that the commission that joe biden heads. there are many steps in the right direction. starting with the executive orders. but the real the crux of the matter is the universal background checks. this is so common sense. it doesn't make any sense that anybody would be opposed to it. as you mentioned in the intro i just got back yesterday from spending time with newtown families. we were very privileged to be invited, roxanne who lost her daughter the same time i was shot and gabriel giffords was shot, to see her speak to families who are just starting this horrible road of grief that no parent should have to go through. it puts a human face on these statisticses that we keep throwing out. >> john: indeed. and i think that that's what is guiding the president through this proposed legislation. but i want to get back to john with the politics. if the senate pass this is package, and then the house kills it, what do you think happens next? and can the democrats benefit long-term if the house republicans demolish this poten

[applause] you hear a lot about how people asking how the republicans are going to reach the women,how are some people going to reach women voters. we are asking them to serve. we're asking them to have a seat at the table. that is why of the congress of the united states that was just sworn in two weeks ago there was a minority congress fear. they have a seat at the head of the table. they have at the head of the table. isn't she spectacular? isn't emily's list spectacular? strategic thinking. we are talking about dedication. we're talking about succe

host: barbara perry, sonia sotomayor is wearing in joe biden and did yesterday. guest: i think that is an amazing landmark in american history. there have been other women on the supreme court, sandra day o'connor was the first woman, ruth bitter ginsberg, have both sworn in vice presidents but this is the first lady to swear in a president. given that has become an issue about the demographics of the country changing and the demographics were issued in this last race, i think it is tremendously symbolic. the fact that her memoir has just hit the shelves -- she had to have the early administration of the road yesterday morning because she had to hop on a train hopzoom, up to a bookstore in new york to talk about the book. her memoir is such an amazing american story of this puerto rico in a couple that come to new york and give birth to sonia sotomayor who lives in the projects and she rises to become a u.s. supreme court justice. as well as having served on the other two lower levels of the court system. order to administer the oath today, the formal vote that will be happenin
